This listing is for one skein of Spring Leaf 75% silk 20% cotton 5% cashmere recycled lace weight yarn. The color is a delicate yellow green. Silk cotton cashmere blends makes a strong soft yarn. This yarn was recycled from an Ann Taylor sweater, deconstructed, wound into skeins, gently washed, and dried unweighted. The photo with the group of skeins shows all of the skeins of yarn from this sweater. Skein #1 is two strands of 2 ply yarn with 22-23 wraps per inch and is a lace weight yarn. Skeins #2 through #5 are composed of a single strand of 2 ply yarn with 30 wraps per inch making them a fine lace weight yarn. Each skein is listed separately and marked if there are any knots. I do my best, but occasionally I miss a knot. These finer silk blends are suited to a number of purposes from fine lace knitting, to lace making, tatting and weaving and embroidery.
Note: There is only one skein available of each different length.
